Gould v Gould, 245 US 151, 153
"In the interpertation of statutes levying taxes,
it is the established rule not to extend their
provisions, by implication, beyond the clear import

so as to embrace matters not specifically pointed out.
In case of doubt they are construed most strongly
against the government and in favor of the citizen."
